An unnamed 16-year-old student at the South Miami Senior High School has been attacking the school’s online learning platform. Since the launch of the school year on Monday, the school district has been the victim of continued Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks that have overwhelmed the network with traffic to either slow it down, or cause the network to fail. Many students have been attempting to log in to the school and have been met with a “please wait” message on their screens. The school system is working with local and federal law enforcement agencies to prosecute cybercrimes. The student admitted to orchestrating eight attacks and the police chief of the school’s police department believes that the student was not working alone.
